Paul Rudd is in talks to join the cast of Sony's next entry in the "Ghostbusters" franchise directed by Jason Reitman.
The "Ant-Man" star will play the role of a teacher in a small town in the film, joining a cast that already includes Finn Wolfhard and McKenna Grace. Carrie Coon is also in talks to join the film, and Sigourney Weaver has teased that she too will be returning to the franchise.
Jason Reitman, whose father Ivan Reitman directed the original "Ghostbusters", will step into the director's chair. He co-wrote the screenplay with Gil Kenan and plans to shoot the film later this summer. "Ghostbusters 2020" is expected to hit theaters in summer of next year.
"I've been wanting to work with Paul Rudd since my short film opened for 'Wet Hot American Summer' at Sundance. I'm thrilled he'll be joining this new chapter in the original Ghostbusters universe", said Jason Reitman.
